Located on the east side of route 1 there is not really much of a view of the beautiful area from the Taproom/Restaurant. Inside there is a nice bar area with a fireplace and a view of the brewery across the street. The restaurant area is in a different room and there is a spacious patio area.

All stainless steel tap nozzles, wood tables, chairs, bar, and bar cabinet along with the fireplace gives the place some character. Did not see the kitchen and the restroom was clean.

Service was friendly and knowledable, befriend your bartender.

All of the North Coast and ACME beers were available, no cask available today (two cask engines) or guest beers. Possible notables being the ACME beers and definite notables being the Old Rasputin I. Stout and Prangster. A local favorite is to (if I remember correctly) blend two thirds Old 38 Stout with one third Old Rasputin, evidently to get a pint size heavy Stout (by law).

The food was a disappointment even with others at the bar however one noted that the fish and chips were their specialty.

Beer was reasonable and food was expensive. (1,102 characters)

So this place is a bit on the pricey side but you really do get what you pay for. The location is amazing, situated just feet from the Pacific Ocean. The town of Fort Bragg has this strange sense of community and when I walked in to the brewery I felt that same sense of community. There were all different types of people and they were all friendly and quick to start a conversation. This brewery makes the best dark and malty bold beers that I've had.

Cheers (462 characters)
